We believe that trips and visits greatly enhance children’s learning and we therefore go on lots of them. We are committed to the provision of regular educational visits for the children; to enhance the school curriculum and to give them experiences that develop their understanding of the curriculum and within their place within London and the wider world. Some of our trips include London’s art galleries and museums, local libraries and bookshops, Hampstead Heath, Coram Fields, kayaking in Camden Lock, Kew Gardens and Sutton House.
Year 6 attend a week’s residential at the end of their time in Primary School. We strongly encourage all parents to allow their children to attend this valuable experience which promotes independence before moving onto Secondary School.
Parents are asked to make contributions towards the costs of visits, covering the costs of visits, covering travel and admission charges. Without such contributions, educational visits would not be financially viable. However, the Governor’s Body is anxious that no child misses a visit due to their parent’s inability to pay. A full copy of the school’s Charging and Remissions Policy is available on request.
In addition to arranging educational visits, the school regularly hosts visiting artists, musicians and authors who perform to the children and lead workshops. We have strong partnerships with the Royal Academy of Music, Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment, Cross Teach, Josh Seigal and Giorgio Locatelli to name a few.
We do sometimes ask parents to accompany us on trips, if you would like to get involved please speak to the class teacher. We appreciate the support.
